Our Top Harmony Tips
- Anemone ‘Harmony’ thrive in either full sun or partial shade and are happy in any fertile, well-drained garden soil.
- All flowers are borne on tall, sturdy stems – which means they’re perfect for cut flowers to enjoy indoors too.
- They’re deciduous, so they will disappear over the Winter months – but don’t worry, the delicate, lacy, mid-green foliage and stunning flowers will be back the following year!
- They are compact, achieving a height and spread of approximately 45cm (18in) x 15cm (6in) and extremely versatile – suitable for colourful additions to the border or a vibrant display in pots and containers.
- Bees love them and actually they’re loved by other pollinators too, including butterflies, moths and hoverflies – so they’ve earned themselves the RHS Perfect for Pollinators mark.
- And finally, not that you’re going to be chewing on them we’re sure, but be aware that they are toxic if eaten!
